Front Cover
Robert J. Sternberg, Elena Grigorenko
Cambridge University Press, Jan 28, 1997 - Psychology - 608 pages
Robert Sternberg and Elena Grigorenko address the roles and interaction of nature and nurture in Intelligence, Heredity and Environment, which provides a comprehensive, balanced, current survey of theory and research on the origins and transmission of human intelligence. The book is unique in the diversity of viewpoints it presents, and its inclusion of the most recent theories and findings. It highlights the search for genes associated with specific cognitive abilities, interactionist theories, cultural relativism, educational strategies, developmental perspectives and fallacies of previous intelligence research. This book will be required reading for students and professionals in the fields of intelligence, behavior genetics, biology, anthropology, and sociology.
